Professional Learning Programme

 

We have collobarated with Russet House School and multidisciplinary partners to provide a programme of weekly autism-related professional learning sessions. These sessions will run alongside our comprehensive Autism Education Trust (AET) Training Programme. Details of our Professional Learning Programme can be found below and details of our AET Training Programme, including booking information, can be found under the Training tab.

 

 These sessions are free to Enfield School staff as they are partially funded by Enfield Schools SEN High Needs Block funding. Please register for these sessions using the links below.
